ACTNews, TASIKMALAYA- There are still seven months before Eid Al-Adha 1441 AH in July 2020. However, many are enthusiastic to prepare for their qurbani sacrifice earlier through the Progressive Qurbani program by Global Qurban ACT.

Take Ruri Majid (28), for example. This man from Tasikmalaya has set aside some of his wealth to buy a qurbani animal for Eid Al-Adha 2020 in December. This year is the second time Ruri has bought qurbani animals through Progressive Qurbani. "This year, I will join the Progressive Qurbani program for Eid Al-Adha 2020. Alhamdulillah, I have some money. I feel at peace before I have prepared my qurbani animal," said Ruri who works at a village-owned enterprise to ACTNews, Wednesday (12/18).

Ruri continues to trust Global Qurban - ACT. According to Ruri, It’s the right choice to perform Qurbani through Global Qurban. "Here in my neighborhood, the residents are quite wealthy. During Eid Al-Adha, there’s quite an abundant amount of meat. Through Global Qurban, we hope that our qurbani can be enjoyed by those who are less fortunate. Last year, Alhamdulillah, my qurbani was sacrificed in Somalia," explained Ruri.

Not only offers an affordable price, but Progressive Qurbani also improves the economy of the farmers. The Waqf-Based Livestock Barn in Tasikmalaya produces the best Qurbani animals for Eid Al-Adha 2020. The livestock is raised and fattened to make sure that it will be suitable to be sacrificed during Eid Al-Adha.

Rosman, one of the members of LTW Tasikmalaya management said that, besides fattening, LTW Tasikmalaya also breeds quality sheep. Special fodder is given to the livestock to produce the best quality animals for the upcoming Iduladha.

"Since they were young, we (LTW breeders) provide nutritious food and special care to the livestock. Therefore, we will get the best quality qurbani animals for Eid Al-Adha. We guarantee it because we take care of them ourselves," said Rosman when ACTNews team visited LTW Tasikmalaya in mid-December.

Progressive Qurbani is a program offered by Global Qurban for people who wish to purchase their qurbani animals earlier. The price is more affordable, and it increases each month as Eid Al-Adha gets closer.

Nia Kurniawati as Head of Global Qurban Data Department explained, every month, the number of people taking part in the Progressive Qurbani program is increasing. "In total, until Wednesday (12/18), 1,324 sacrificial animals equivalent to goats have been purchased through Global Qurban," explained Nia. Shee hopes that this year Global Qurban will be able to deliver more qurbani meat to beneficiaries in Indonesia and overseas. []
